Our district adopted the Discovery Education Social Studies Techbook this year, found on the DiscoveryEd online portal. As the trainers for this Techbook even say, it is "not a curriculum" but rather "a resource." To that end, my colleagues and I have had to create a variety of worksheets to support the activities in the Techbook as well as quiz questions for reading passages that can be uploaded to Socrative or Kahoots or even used on Google Forms. Some of the resources have been retyped from the original pdf format into a Word doc or spreadsheet with minor format and directions changes. ALL resources I have created are for Grade 7, World Geography chapters TO ACCOMPANY the DiscoveryEd online Techbook. There is no direct text from the chapters themselves. For that, you will need an account with Discovery Education.
This particular resource connects to Grade 7 World Geography Techbook Chapter 4.2 Explain Activity. It asks the students to:
"Write a Short Response Informative essay to show what you have learned about Europe’s Human-Environment Interaction."
The original activity is in a pdf format, on which the kids can not enter information. I took the activity and retyped it into Word, adding some basic details and a rubric.
